Excellent quality and a great wide angle lens

  • Summary: When I see the quality of the images this lens is capable of producing, I sometimes wonder why one would pay a great deal more for a Canon lens. A superb lens with pin sharp focusing. Well worth the money.

filters on the Sigma 12-24mm

john483622, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: As the Sigma leaflet says - filters are not recommended for this lens, although the extension cap is fitted for a 82mm filter. Any filter gives heavy vignetting at all focal lengths except 24mm, because one has to have the extender cap on, so it's impractical. Trying garden shots I held a Cokin P 3-stop filter in front, just touching the lens hood top and bottom, and it worked. There is just enough dark area to cover the view.

Sweet as a nut

Scoopster, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm loving this lens, although I admit my uses for it have been limited thus far. A few good shots for sponsors and the local press, and a few very encouraging portrait style images of dramatic skies. I've not tried it for anything creative yet - proper landscapes, long exposures at the sky, close ups with expansive backgrounds - but I bought this for the ultra wide angle of the lens and I am not disappointed in the slightest.

Highly rated (on Canon body)

Mac-Man, Amazon
1 January 2013
  • Summary: Having read many mixed reviews I took a chance on this lens and have taken about 500 shots so far using a Canon 5D2 (full frame sensor). Its not an inexpensive lens but compared with some Canon L glass its also not that expensive for the quality it produces. 12mm is massively wide, possibly too wide for some landscape shots as it distorts noticeably towards the left and right edges but for architecture it is simply superb with perfectly straight lines giving beautiful...

Brilliant Quality Great Price

paulcw, WEX

  • Summary: Ultra wide angle lens for Full Frame DSLR users. Great results and a competitive price means this is an attractive purchase. Yes the aperture range means this is 'slower' than some other zooms and prime lenses in this range, but I'm normally on a tripod looking for great depth of field or hand holding with flash.What's it like to live with? Results have been great, my clients have been buying the images! Clients have commented on the distingive look of the front element.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Picture Quality, Price, Sharp images, Wide angle of view
  • Cons: Exposed front element

Wer mehr als 16mm will: ganz klare Kaufempfehlung ( aber was für Fotografen, nicht für Knipser )

Dr.Know "optional", Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: Mit gemischten Gefühlen ( wegen der teilw. eher negativen Bewertungen ) habe ich trotzdem bestellt und bin nun sehr zufrieden. Mit meinem bisherigen WW ( Canon 16-35 1:2,8 L II an 1DS Mark III) stoße ich einfach zu oft an die Grenzen ( Motive: Räume, Küchen, große Maschinen und immer verdammt wenig Platz ). Die Lichtstärke von nur 4,5 / 5,6 ist ( in diesem Fall ) vollkommen wurst da ich immer mit bis zu 10 Blitzen ausleuchte und wegen der Schärfe eh auf mindestens Bl.

Sigma 12-24

Prof Dr Werner Vogel, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: Entgegen allen Negativäußerungen habe ich mit dem Weitwinkel bis jetzt nur gute Erfahrungen gesammelt. Als Vollversion an der Canon EF 6D konnte ich keine ungewöhnlichen Verzeichnungen oder Randabschattungen feststellen. Die Belichtung war gut, die Schärfe im gesamten Einstellbereich einwandfrei. Ich kann die Verwendung dieser Kombination von Kamera und Objektiv nur empfehlen.

Sehr gutes Objektiv für den Preis ...

BE "BE", Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: ... aber den unter "Wird oft zusammengekauft" beworbenen UV Filter kann man an diesem Objektiv nicht verwenden. Es gibt wegen der konstruktionsbedingt weit nach vorn stehenden Frontlinse gar keine Möglichkeit, einen Filter zu montieren. Die Bildqualität dieses sehr speziellen Objektives finde ich für den zur Zeit angebotenen Preis in Ordnung.
